This is my growing sweater from my first knitting project since 4-H over 45 years ago, which was a pair of slippers. Actually, it's not my first project. I did knit an earwarmer for a little practice first. I have passed the increases on the lower half of the sweater and am starting to have my doubts now. I'm hoping it will smooth out when it is blocked. It has been great fun and the yarn is 100% alpaca and is so soft. Even if I never wear it in public, I can wear it at home and just caress it. I'm sure the ribbing at the bottom, the button banding and the sleeves will make it look very different. I'm just hoping I can get to the bottom before class on Tuesday so I can be instructed in putting the band on.
